The Justice League movie might not be great, but it potentially sets up DC’s characters for some better stand-alone movies. One of those is the Aquaman movie, due out next December, and given the renewed excitement surrounding the guardian of the Earth’s oceans, it’s probably time for a new Aquaman video game as well.
So far, most of Warner Bros.’ films based on DC Comics characters haven’t had the kinds of ending credits sequences that are staples of Marvel’s movies. That all changes with Justice League, with a major hint about a future challenge to the team’s heroes.
If you’ve seen Joachim Trier’s other movies, like Louder Than Bombs or Oslo, August 31st, you might not have expected him to make a horror movie about a young woman with superpowers. But the Norwegian director says Thelma is all about getting back to his fairy tale roots.
Two weeks ago, news broke that The Raid director Gareth Evans would possibly be heading up a Deathstroke film project for Warner Bros. Pairing a superhuman assassin with the guy who made a movie full of close-quarters combat set pieces seems like a match made in heaven, right? But, really, Deathstroke is the perfect…
When Colin Trevorrow left Star Wars: Episode IX, fans wondered if Last Jedi director Rian Johnson would be taking his place. He didn’t, but that’s apparently because instead he’s working on three new Star Wars movies that are wilder than anyone could have possibly imagined.
In the West, Takashi Miike is probably best known for gritty, gory thrillers like Audition, Ichi the Killer and 13 Assassins. With 100 movies under his name, the Japanese director qualifies as a cinema demigod. Fittingly, his newest movie, Blade of the Immortal, revolves around a long-lived samurai who’s damn near…
The Academy Awards are still a few months away, but it’s already time for Hollywood to start reminding the world of all the great work it did over the past year. That includes all of the amazing achievements in visual effects, as this breakdown of how FX Studio Hybride faked a giant ocean-going armada for Kong: Skull…
We loved Wolfcop, a movie that felt amazingly out of its time and also just some silly, suitably hairy fun. Now, it has a sequel... naturally called Another Wolfcop. Delightful.
In “Back to Cool,” the 20th episode of The Cleveland Show’s second season, there is what may be the only casual joke about director Kasi Lemmons’ film Eve’s Bayou that’s ever been made in television history. The joke’s about how often the movie airs on TV and the thing that makes it funny is how accurate it is.
For reasons that I cannot explain, Warner Bros. is moving forward with its decision to produce a Shazam! movie. Zachary Levi, a man who isn’t particularly known for his super heroic physique, is playing the titular Shazam, and now we know who has been cast as Billy Batson, the kid who becomes Shazam.
Red Sonja, the swashbuckling comic book heroine created by Roy Thomas and Barry Windsor Smith, is returning to the world of film.
Hello, and welcome to another installment of “Oh god, why do I keep volunteering to re-read the worst Star Wars Expanded Universe novels, do I have some sort of Stockholm Syndrome?” I have picked Roger MacBride Allen’s Corellian Trilogy this time as it contains one of my all-time favorite twists.
The first trailer for Downsizing focused more on explaining the big ideas about its kooky scifi concepts—a world where dwindling resources has driven the creation of technology that shrinks humans down to sizes small enough reduce their impact on the environment. The new trailer is a little bit more about what comes…
For several months rumors have swirled that Jon Favreau’s remake of Lion King would feature one of the biggest stars on the planet, Beyoncé, and now we know that’s true. The Queen B took to her Facebook to not only announce her own involvement, but the rest of the cast too.
The silver lining of blockbuster sci-fi movies that end up being critical and box office disappointments is that you still get to see a bunch of neat spaceships on the big screen.

Jack Ma, the eccentric CEO of online marketplace Alibaba, has a well-documented flair for the theatrical. Now the South China Morning Post—a newspaper owned by Ma—reports their boss will assume a starring role in the upcoming short movie Gong Shou Dao.
The goal of Netflix’s Bright is clearly to slam together the tropes of the buddy cop movie with those of fantasy. So we’ve got a veteran cop in Will Smith’s Officer Ward and a newbie and first Orc officer in Joel Edgerton’s Jakoby. And then they stumble onto a magic wand that causes real problems.
There are so many high-concept scifi movies out there, it’s always interesting to hear about one with an original premise. And that’s exactly what Radius has.
There is often no stranger advertising partnership between a comic book movie and a car manufacturer. Not just because the thought of superheroes who can run at superhuman speeds or fly being used to shill a car is weird, but because it often means a completely insane comic tie-in to go with it. And they’re often…
